In observance of National Children’s Dental Health Month, the Coastal Bend College (CBC) Dental Hygiene program will conduct a free sealant day for youth 6-17 years of age. Free dental examinations for adults will also be conducted throughout the day.

CBC encourages all community members from Beeville and the surrounding areas to participate in this free event on Saturday, February 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the CBC Dental Hygiene Clinic.

Youth who require sealants, a preventative measure that acts as a barrier between the tooth and cavities, will receive them during their examination. The CBC Dental Hygiene Department will administer all services.

Dental examinations will include a review of the patient’s oral health history, a physical examination of the patient’s mouth, and a referral for dental treatment, if necessary.

A sign-in sheet will be provided the day of the event to ensure that all patients have an opportunity to be seen; no appointments will be accepted. All youth must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to receive services from the CBC Dental Hygiene Department.

If you are unable to attend this event, the CBC Dental Hygiene Program operates a clinic that conducts teeth cleanings for the general public in the clinic on Mondays and Wednesdays. Appointment times for both days are at 8:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 12:45 p.m. and 2:45 p.m.

Examinations and teeth cleanings are free for senior citizens over 65 years of age, faculty & staff, and active or retired military. Students receive services for $5 with a valid CBC ID and the general public receives services for $10. No additional charge is accumulated for multiple appointment patients, x-rays, or sealants.

The CBC Dental Hygiene Clinic is located in the James R. Dougherty, Jr. Building on the CBC Beeville campus located at 3800 Charco Rd in Beeville, Texas, 78102. Questions regarding sealant day, dental services or appointments should be directed to the CBC Dental Hygiene Department via telephone at (361) 354-2555.
